tv Early Today NBC January 22, 2013 4:00am-4:30am PST
ruby red gown by jason wu. this was the ball for the military. >> i have no greater honor than being your commander in chief. >> reporter: it had been an obama family day, malia and sasha, dad and mom. as america paid tribute. an inaugural parade that showed off the nation's talent and diversity. >> i, barack hussein obama, do solemnly swear -- >> reporter: the president's ceremonial swearing-in, witnessed by as many as a million people. >> so help me god. >> congratulations, mr. president. >> reporter: mr. obama urged cooperation, rare now in washington, to cut health care costs and the deficit. >> but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. >> reporter: we can make progress, he said, on immigration, gay rights, climate change and school safety. a night to remember for the obamas and for the nation that
re-elected the president. i'm steve handelsman, nbc news, washington. president obama never used the words "democrat" or "republican" in his second inaugural address, but his political message was crystal clear. a full-throated embrace of progressive policies, along with a directive for our leaders to spear head the challenges that define us as individuals and as a country. >> the commitments we make to each other through medicare, medicaid and social security, these things do not sap our initiative. they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. we will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. we, the people, still believe
enduring security and lasting peace do not require perpetual war. and we must be a source of hope to the poor, the sick, the marginalized. the victims of prejudice. our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see america as a land of opportunity. our journey is not complete until all our children, from the streets of detroit to the hills of appalachia to the quiet lanes of newtown, know that they are cared for and cherished. and always safe from harm. with common effort and common purpose, with passion and dedication, let us answer the call of history and carry into an uncertain future that precious light of freedom. thank you, god bless you.
and may he forever bless these united states of america. >> well, this year the inauguration fell on the martin luther king jr. holiday. after being sworn in monday, president obama paused for a moment of reflection in front of the bust of the leader at the capitol rotunda. he was joined by the first lady and congressional leaders. but the president wasn't the only one in the spotlight monday. first daughters sasha and malia obama had quite a few scene-stealing moments of their own. malia busted out some dance moves for her mom before the swearing-in. and 11-year-old sasha created an instant viral video by yawning during her dad's presidential address right after a line about education policy. the girls also used their phones to take lots of photos of their family during the event. at one point, malia even photo bombed her younger sister. before leaving the inaugural platform as the center of attention for the very last time, president obama had the presence of mind to stop and take in the moment.
>> i'm not going to see this again. >> all right, senator, great job. >> well done. >> all right, senator, great job. meanwhile, the "today" show's al roker had this unforgettable moment with vice president joe biden while covering the inaugural parade. >> mr. vice president! mr. vice president! mr. vice president! hey, how are you doing? come on -- come on, they won't let you? are you -- yeah, that's it! yeah! all right! yes! yes! >> who can say no to al roker?
>> surprised he actually came up -- >> persistence pays off. dylan dreyer is here. good morning. >> good morning. we are actually seeing pretty cold temperatures across the country. want a lot going on across the west coast today, so we're dealing with poor air quality across the pacific northwest. where it's coldest, especially across oregon, that's where we're starting off today with freezing fog. we will see a bigger system start to move in tomorrow. it will bring rain to the seattle area, portland, oregon, down into northwestern california through the day tomorrow and into the rest of the week it looks like. it's another big storm that moves in and sticks around for a while. the next expected rainfall for the next 48 hours, you can see it takes a day before the rain moves in but it looks like we'll pick up an inch from seattle to northwestern california. and then it will eventually start to spread eastward in the form of mountain snow. we could end up with some
mountain regions picking up another foot oforegon, as well as, 33 degrees. fallon, nevada, high of 41. we broke record high temperatures yesterday in southern california, so a total opposite of what areas in northern plains are seeing. >> must be nice. thanks so much. straight ahead, we'll take you to israel where benjamin netanyahu is hoping to be re-elected as prime minister today. a woman faints and fails to the rescue. the dramatic rescue when "early today" returns in two minutes.
now, prime minister's netanyahu's coalition government may be weaker after today's voting. will that change israel's policies? >> reporter: good morning, mara. the latest polling showed even though netanyahu's party is about to lose eight to ten seats in the parliament, he'll still make it a comfortable win today. the policies going forward, that will be largely shaped by the coalition he forms to govern with and that horse trading will start in earnest probably as early as tomorrow. his obvious choice is lining up with even more hard-line parties to his right, including a right wing, extreme right wing group who are saying publicly they want to annex much of the west bank. that would be a worst-case scenario for palestinians here. or netanyahu could surprise
everyone and form a more centrist government, leaning more to the left of center, giving him, as analysts here say, more options to deal with stalled peace talks and a struggling economy. now, that is a very longshot, mara. what we're expected to see when the dust settles here, hopefully we'll get early returns by this evening, by minute night our time we should have a pretty good idea who wins and it's quite likely to be a more entrenched and transient netanyahu. >> thank you for that. now, back to our nation's capital, where the senate has the opportunity to kill the filibuster in 60-vote minimum to pass the legislation. instead, they can change the rules today in favor of a simple 51-vote majority while bringing back the talking filibuster. next to los angeles where former cardinal roger mahony said i'm sorry. according to confidential church records the retired catholic leader and other clergymen shielded pedophile priests for
from criminal prosecution for more than a decade before the scandal became public. authorities say one person has died after a snowy highway pileup involving as many as 85 vehicles in southwest ohio. the crash on interstate 275 was one of three separate pileups that snared dozens of vehicles on monday. in denver a security camera showed a mini van slamming into a parked suv, which then crashed into two other parked vehicles. the 22-year-old driver told police he fell asleep at the wheel. two people inside the van were hurt. a dramatic rescue caught on tape. in spain a 52-year-old woman fants and falls to the tracks of a railway station. a police officer springs on the tracks, picks the woman up and takes her to the platform. thank goodness for that rescue. traders are back to wall street after yesterday's holiday. earnings on deck today, dupont, johnson & johnson, verizon, ibm

i can't wait to be an uncle. it's unfair they were forced to publicize it when they were, but that's just the media for you. >> and here's what he had to say when asked whether he feels any pressure to settle down. >> can you have the urge to settle down. you hope you find the right person and everything feels right, then it takes time. especially for myself and my brother. you're never going to find someone that's going to jump into the position it would hold. simple as that. moving on to sports. we start with college basketball. syracuse against cincinnati. number three syracuse was tied at 55-55 with number one cincinnati in the closing minutes. the orangemen took the lead on the tip-in and hung on to beat the bearkats 57-55. the brooklyn nets ahead of the new york knicks in the final minute to pull off an 88-85 win. after the game, the nets kris humphries couldn't resist a jab on twitter. he said, big game tonight. the garden really got quite on the way out. j.r. smith didn't like that and
